Barbarity is a recurrent yet elusive and therefore much debated theme in Euripidean drama. This article critisises some arguments that have recently been presented for a barbarophobic reading of Euripides' plays. It then argues that Iphigeneia among the Taurians is structurally more complex than is generally recognised. Finally, it offers an analysis of Euripides' handling in this play of the themes of selfhood, exile and displacement.
